The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) will make double payments of the R350 special relief grants this week.
According to a statement, the double payments are for outstanding June and July accounts.
Sassa has also reconsidered some applications for May and updated its database.
“SASSA also reconsidered applications made in May against updated databases received, which resulted in an additional approximately 1 million applicants being approved for the grant,” read the statement.
Beneficiaries who receive their money through the Post Office have been advised to visit the premises only once they receive an SMS.
